in it to get relief..3 what do you think?. >> in defense i rode rode my melissa: steve, give a picture. i don't beeve it. >> i will tweet i to you after this i absutely did. melissa: good for you. >> give governor brown credit. he often getsriticized for siding wh environmentalists against consumers and bbsinesses. this time he went the other way. good for him. we have the delicate balance. we want to protect the environment. we're very proud of the beautiful landape out here in california but we also want to mak sure we don't strangle businesses. that delicate balance is hard to achieve but i think governor brown did the right thing. melissa: i can't believe you're making this argument. it is completely ridiculous. ivers have only themselves to blame. this was riff ren dmb to special cocktail of gasoline that so so expensive and so rare. not only that in 2015 it is getting worse. another proposition came in where standards will get even higher, tighting the stranglehold around drivers you're talking about. voters have only theirselves to blame for this situatio and getting relief from this l
and hundreds of drug tests. and that was always his defense. i did the tests, they knock on my door in the middle of the night, they come in, i do the test, i always pass. one of his former teammates said, well, i was cheating and i passed hundreds of tests as well. they have so much evidence against him. here is the list. they say they have eyewitness, documentary, firsthand, scientific, direct and circumstantial evidence and testimony from 11 former teammates. they have got 15 riders on record, 26 people in total have given sworn testimony. it doesn't look at all good for lance, does it? >> it doesn't at all, especially when he's quoted from this usada statement. lance armstrong was given the same opportunity to come forward and be part of the solution. he rejected it. what have we heard. what has cnn heard from lance armstrong or his attorney? >> he had the opportunity earlier this year to fight the charge. he said no. he basically thinks it is a witch-hunt, a kangaroo court. he thinks he can't win anyway. he thinks the whole system is set up to get him and to target him. so he d
reason to feel good about his campaign, where it is right now, after weeks on the defensive. as we noted he's rising in the polls, and seeing more enthusiasm inside the party and out on the campaign trial. one good night goes a long way but one good night does not amount to a free pass. many of the tough questions that he was facing before the debate remain on the table afterwards, and some of his answers during the debate are raising new questions. wolf blitzer spoke at length today with the republican candidate. here's a portion of that interview. >> were you surprised by the president's performance? >> i actually thought he described pretty appropriately and pretty effectively his policies. i just happen to disagree with those policies. we talked about the economy, he really is not proposing anything he hasn't talked about for the last four years. i think the challenge that he has is that his ideas are just not demonstrating the kind of results he would hope for, and people recognize that. >> are you confident, governor, that paul ryan will take on joe biden thursday night the way you

in the example of governor romney is suggesting that if we had spending cuts in defense, it would kill jobs in virginia. >> that is where you need leadership from the top. i will point back to the governors. successful governors do two things really well -- provide leadership and propose a bold initiatives to their legislatures. they also have a strategy or a blueprint, if you will, for economic growth for the future. those are the successful governors. >> no president has had the reorganization of authority since ronald reagan. it expired in the 1980's. i think that needs to come back. i would put back the authority lost after the nixon area -- era. there has got to be a combination. you cannot leave the size and the structure of the garment we have in place. this is a government functions on an old model despite a 20 per century technology model. it is painful and slow. look at the demographics of the federal work force. they are aging. attrition would take care of a lot of this, if it could be accompanied by risk management. president obama, the largest management he has -- he has run th
that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. (crowd cheers) >> narrator: and when goldwater received the nomination, mitt saw his father angrily storm out. >> i think that my father was always willing to live according to his principles. he didn't shy away from any challenge. he was a very strong person in doing that. and we learned that you have to live up to what you believe in. >> narrator: one thing george romney believed in was the vietnam war. and one year later, when mitt showed up at stanford university, he would adopt his father's position. >> so, he is very much on his father's side for the vietnam war at that time. he is really out of his element where the whole campus is being roiled by this anti-war and anti-establishment protest. >> narrator: mitt took on the protestors. >> mitt romney is a fairly rule-bound person. he actually protested the protestors. he held up a big sign that said, "go back to your studies." >> and we see the mitt romney who cares about rules and institutions and following orders. and that causes him to take a very dim view, i think, of the protest
spent those two weeks doing what he intended to do rather than playing defense. i do know that focus groups, both romney campaign ran and the obama campaign ran showed these remarks really alienated independent voters and even weak republicans. which indicates to me that this comes up again in the debate and advertising, it will remind people. they forgot about it or responding to the debate. host: let's go to phone calls. barb, democratic caller you're on the air. caller: i would like to say that romney expressed his real feeling about the 47%. it cannot be ignored. also understand that he signed grover norquist pledge. if he did that, he cannot represent 100% of the population because if you say that you're going to ignore the situation that the country is in, you cannot say that you unequivocally ignore taxes and to get income to support the country. with that, he could not represent me and the middle class and or poor people. host: we'll leave it there. john in north carolina, tweets in this though. the 53% are not in the least offended by the comment which was by and large t
